In a new fundraising appeal, Attorney General Maura Healey is trying to rile up donors by promising to take President-elect Donald Trump to court. "Donald Trump plans to roll back much of the progress we've made in Massachusetts and as a nation," Healey wrote in an email to supporters Tuesday. "A lot of people are asking, 'What can be done?' When the federal government overreaches, state attorneys general have an enormously important role to play. The People's Lawyer is the first line of defense against illegal action by the federal government and I won't hesitate to take Donald Trump to court if he carries out his unconstitutional campaign promises." After asking donors to give $50, $100 or "whatever you can," Healey notes she worked in the attorney general's office when it was part of lawsuits against the federal government over the Defense of Marriage Act and regulation of carbon emissions. Asserting that "the fight ahead is even bigger," Healey ticked off issues that could be litigated, including health care, gun laws, climate change, and Wall Street reforms. Following a divisive election in which Hillary Clinton won the popular vote, Trump's supporters are looking forward to the major changes he has promised to deliver while his critics are pledging to both fight his policy agenda and work with the president-elect on areas where they can find common ground. - Michael P.
